You cannot use bar notation before a decimal point. Here's why. If you write the number 88, you can't put a bar over the 8 because that would mean the number 8888888888888888... See, it's a totally different number. Bar notation may only be used on a repeating number or series of numbers AFTER the decimal point. (Source: study.com)

The bar depicted above is presented above the repeating element of the numerical string. This is known as the repetend. You may wish to convert a fraction to a decimal to make adding and subtracting quantities more straightforward. However, it is common to encounter a repeating decimal in practical math when you convert fractions to percentages or decimals, and this reduces the accuracy of the calculation.

You may enter simple rational numbers with the whole portion separated from the decimal portion by a decimal point (ex. 12.25). You may also convert to fractions numbers with infinitely repeating digits by enclosing the repeating digits in parenthesis or by adding '...' at the end of the number. See the following table for examples: (Source: www.alcula.com)
